Volupta Picture

One of those things that I've loved since I was a child is Mythology. My current favourite myth is Eros and Psyche's. You can read their story in Apuleius' "The Golden Ass".
This is a drawing of Eros (god of erotic love) and Psyche (the soul): Volupta, goddess of pleasure. Her latin name means "pleasure" or "bliss". The Greeks called her Hedoné.
She's cute, isn't she?

Hope you like it!

Una de esas cosas que me encantan desde que era pequeña es la mitología. Actualmente, mi mito favorito es el de Eros y Psique. Podéis leer su historia en "El asno de oro", de Apuleyo.
Éste es un dibujo de la hija de Eros (dios del amor erótico) y Psique (el alma): Volupta, diosa del placer. Su nombre latino significa "placer" o "dicha". Los griegos la llamaban Hedoné.
Es mona, ¿ verdad?

Espero que os guste!
